Christmas will have to wait.

it looks like Christmas decorating and festivities will have to wait for us just a few more days while we are off going to bays and beaches and eating clam chowder and stuff. (!!!)

yesterday aaron got done with work early so we drove a few miles out to Morro Bay. even the drive there and back was so so pretty. green fields and rolling hills. everywhere! it's just too bad that photos are so sub-par compared to the real thing. it is seriously so beautiful up here.

last night we got dinner at a local spot called Splash Cafe, after hearing about their famous clam chowder and bread bowls. it was a fun place, but we both had a hard time getting through our clam chowder. all i will say is that it reminded me of mayonnaise....which could never be a good thing. but, you know what they say....when in rome!.....?

after dinner we somehow ended up in a candy shop at the san luis obispo promenade. my husband was the kid in that candy shop last night, and even came home with a few goodies.

all in a day's work.

  2. While you're in SLO, you should go to Firestone's. They have awesome sandwiches and delicious French fries!

  3. I tried Splash Cafe for the first time a few months ago when driving through SLO. We considered it a "tourist stop" because they were so highly reviewed, but I didn't like the clam chowder, either! Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I like mine more watery, less buttery. Oh, well. Different strokes, I guess!

  10. Sounds like a lovely time! I'm missing my man, he's always out decorating so I'm very jealous of your couple time (although not your clam chowder from the sounds of it!) x

  11. I am seriously loving your scarf...I need something similar in my wardrobe.

    I love sweet shops as I am addicted to sweets, or just buying them. Most the time I buy them and then forget all about them and re-discover them a couple of months later, which I like to think makes them extra special.
